How much of linux do i really need to know for HackTheBox or OSCP?

edited June 26 in Programming

I am seeing some insane things running on linux boxes and im pretty sure that i need a proper training on Linux system administration to do these boxes, Is there a good youtube channel that covers Linux system administration in simple terms?


  • you need to know man and <mycommand> --help
    then read commands for priv esc
    and all the commands along the oscp pdf


    • overthewire did some good stuffs


  • Overthewire's Bandit is recommended of course.

    More of linux is understood by basically playing with it. Understanding things like dir structure, file permissions, commands etc.

    Privesc is a completely different topic and can be studied by reading and watching material on linux privesc methods.
